  • Organelles

    cell membrane is a thin semi-permeable membrane that surrounds the cell. Its purpose is to hold the structure of the cell‚ protecting and enclosing all of the other organelles within it. The semi-permeable membrane enables substances to move in and out of the cell. The nucleus is like the brain of the cell. It is the biggest organelle in the cell‚ containing the DNA and also controls the activity within the cell. The nuclear membrane is very similar to the cell membrane as it is semi-permeable allowing

    Cell Processes and Body Organisation Nucleus The nucleus is the largest‚ most prominent organelle‚ usually spherical and roughly about 10mm in diameter. Every eukaryote cell‚ with the exception of red blood cells due to their very specific function‚ has a nucleus. The nucleus’ function is to store DNA‚ it does so in two ways: One is tightly packed and this is called heterochromatin‚ this isn’t read. And the other is loosely packed‚ named euchromatin. Euchromatin is the actively read material

    existence of cell organelles within the cell structure‚ allowing the function of the cell itself to occur; It was necessary to increase magnification by utilising an alternate source radiation (alternate to light).The result was the electron microscope‚ whereby the short wavelength and negative charge of electrons when supplied with energy allowed for greater focusing with electromagnetism. This method bends the path of the beam in the manner of a lens to light. Cell Organelles and the variation

    Cell Organelles Nucleus Its function is to control the cell’s activities and retain the chromosomes.  The nucleus is bound by a double membrane‚ the nuclear envelope. The nuclear envelope has pores in it to allow the transport of mRNA.  The cytoplasm like material is called nucleoplasm which contains chromatin (coils of DNA and histone proteins)‚ it is chromatin that condenses to form chromosomes during cell division.  Within the nucleus is a small spherical body called the nucleolus which

    [pic] Cells and Their Organelles The cell is the basic unit of life. The following is a glossary of animal cell terms. All cells are surrounded by a cell membrane. The cell membrane is semipermeable‚ allowing some substances to pass into the cell and blocking others. It is composed of a double layer of phospholipids and embedded proteins. Color and label the cell membrane tan. Plant cells have an additional layer surrounding them called the cell wall. The cell wall is made of nonliving

    Question: Describe five different organelles and their functions. Explain the similarity and differences between eukaryotic cells and prokaryotic. All eukaryotic cells‚ whether from animals‚ plants‚ protists‚ and fungi‚ are fundamentally similar to one another but different from prokaryotic cell. A eukaryotic cell contains various other organelles‚ which perform specific functions in the cell. These organelles can be organized into few basic functional groups such as genetic control‚ distribution

    vesicles as well. Prokaryotic Cell Eukaryotic Cell The division amongst prokaryotes and eukaryotes is considered to be the most significant difference among groups of organisms. Eukaryotic cells contain membrane-bound organelles‚ such as the nucleus‚ while prokaryotic cells do not. Differences in cellular structure of prokaryotes and eukaryotes include the presence of mitochondria and chloroplasts‚ the cell wall‚ and the arrangement of chromosomal DNA. Prokaryotes were

    Cell Organelle Worksheet Organelle Nucleus Where found (plant/animal/both) In animals it’s in the center of the cell while in plants it’s found in the cytoplasm. What it does in the cell (functions) It maintains the integrity of the genes and controls the activities of the cell. Something that performs the same function in the “real world” It works like a CPU sending out messages. Organelle Nucleolus Where found (plant/animal/both) For both animal and plants it’s within the nucleus of the

    Biology- cell organelles assignment Animal cells: Introduction: An animal cell is called a eukaryotic cell; it has a cell membrane‚ cytoplasm and a nucleus. The cell surface is covered by a membrane only. The cell membrane is strong and keeps the cell together even though it is thin and flexible. The cell membrane also controls what goes in and out of the cell e.g. nutrients go in and waste comes out. The cytoplasm is inside the nucleus and it controls the cells activities. An animal is
